Hi Friends

Thursday, December 08, 2011

So the day is going pretty well. Zumba this morning. It felt better. Good info from students and the instructor. It's nice to feel wanted. :) I did some very productive Christmas shopping. Then lunch with mom. We went to a new resturant and it was very nice. I had a smal spinach salad and a bowl of chili. Very yummy. After Sparking I will get some more done around here. Dinner with the in-laws was uneventful. Thank God. I guess I could get all negative about things that were said but I won't. I prayed a lot before we left to pick up my in-laws and I swear if God did not carry me through all of it. I was friendly but not too engaging. I was respectful without verbally justifying anything they are doing with this party. I didn't comment at all when I heard of more they invited. I sat with myself. I felt like God really helped me be at peace. I'll take it! I thank him. I'm happy I had that for Joe. I know it's difficult for him and he can't change any of it right now. So why complain to him? So it will be and I will focus on the Monday after the party. Knowing by that day this will be over and I can move on to a great Christmas. I hope all is well with my sparkies!

    You made it through that dinner very well. It only would have made things worse for everyone if you had provoked them about what is happening. Have the party and then you can just move on from there. Maybe you can make plans for next year to help keep this from happening again after the holidays are over of course. Have a good night.

Hi Wenesday!

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

Yesterday was pretty successful. Food choices were pretty good. Zumba in the morning. It was a good class but I'm not thrilled with the playlist. I'm not sure whats up but there is less pop music and alot of Zumba music. I do like latin music but I really use the hip hop music to push myself. I will ponder this. Mom and I went to lunch and did some shopping. I got some things accomplished there. Lunch was a chicken cobb salad minus the cheese and with balsalmic dressing. After the shopping I came home and did alot of laundry. I boxed up the ornaments that were left from the night before and organized the house some more. I picked up the boys from school and headed to get their haircut. We didn't get home until 7pm. I decided I didn't feel like cooking at that point and ordered chinese food. I had shrimp and broccoli with no rice. Yum. I had a skinny cow ice cream cone and 2 squares of dark chocolate. I also had a handful of almonds for snack during the day with a cup of cottage cheese. breakfast was a cup of plain greek yogurt. So overall not bad. Today I will make out my cards and do some cleaning here. I'm picking our niece up early from school. So we will have lunch with Joe and I'll take her shopping. Girls love that stuff! :) We are having dinner with my in-laws tonight. Wish me luck!

    Good Luck with the in-laws. Hopefully they will take things in stride and not be pushy with you or put the guilt trip on you.

I love chinese food, I'm jealous of you for having that. emoticon

Maybe you should enroll into a hip hop fitness class and see if you like that?

Have a good day.

Tree decorated

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

So that's good. Ok so I will rearrange and spruce it up a bit...but over all the tree actually looks like one that you would buy decorated at Macy's :). The boys being teenagers weren't thrilled about decorating it. That was sad for me but understandable. So I did get more done than I thought I was going to. Despite myself. I've realized my bad mood has to do with my food choices. It's a vicious circle. I eat bad food because I feel down and then I feel sick which makes me feel down so I eat more bad food. Carbs whether whole grain or white sugar seem to effect me this way. So at least I will work on this. A different approach may help me make better choices. I'm going to Zumba today. Thank God. My mom should be coming. I'm glad she wants to get some exercise. I have some shopping to do. I made up my Christmas cards last night. So today I will work on getting those made out. In-laws are pushing it again....I ran into a friend of my mother in-law at the market last night and thanked me for having her at my home for the party! I was told this was just family! Ugggg....This is the second friend I found out that is coming. We live on a back road with very bad parking for people. Joe agreed we have to have a conversation with them tomorrow night at dinner about this. Uggg....Have a good Tuesday friends!

    I don't have my tree up yet. My DH said he would go to the cabin and get a real one but he has not done that yet so I guess I will dig out the fake one! At least it doesn't need water or shed needles.

    Take care of yourself, this is still the time to think of you and your health. If you don't, who will? The crazier things get, the worse off you will be if you can't figure things out. I hope that the talk with your in laws helps things.

    Oh man! What a thought. Not just family, but their friends too? That's just not right. That's like taking advantage or something. I feel for you.

I hope that you won't end up with problems from your neighbours about the parking issue.

As for the carbs...I'm guilty too. Although, I don't seem to get moody.

Have a cup of tea or something. You need to relax a bit.

Hi Friends

K so not so good choices this morning. I was doing good...eggs with lowfat cheese , ham and broccoli. Sounds good right? Then I ate 2 pieces of pizza. Ugggg... I'm stressing out about this holiday party my in-laws asked to have at our home. The guest list has now popped up to 65ish!!!!!! I keep hearing many won't make it but it seems like when I have something everyone shows up. A compliment but we need to be realistic about things. There will be many children here. I have no choice. This is going to happen. I guess that is my problem. I have a few control issues and I feel out of control about this. My mother in-law is not well. She is the one who asked to get the whole family together. I know she is worried there won't be another Christmas to do it. Who am I to say no? I won't be the daughter in-law who did that. Oh no. Still I'm making bad choices. I need to let go and let God take care of this. I know this. It's not easy. I know this too. One moment at a time here. I will make a list of what I need to do. Feeling bad. Sorry friends. Not my upbeat self. I'll get myself a glass of water. Drink up!

    Get yourself on track and do whatever you need to do. Things will happen and you can only ever have true control over yourself and your choices in life.

    Wow. Sometimes things can just get out of control quickly. Sit down. Breathe. Make a list. Cross it off one item at a time. You'll be okay.

    All you need is to clean your house and since your decorations are already up, that's one thing not to worry about.

As for freaking out. There is no sense in that. I too have family over and the main thing is to have the stuff cooked and ready. If you can't handle it, or it's too overwhelming, maybe you could get some catering done. Or perhaps see if there are people that are willing to help by bringing something, like squares and such. I know that it all adds up and people like to help.

When I go to Mom's for Christmas dinner, I always bring the dessert. I'm sure that you'll manage, even though 65 people is daunting. You are a true go-getter person and I'm sure you'll be able to pull this one off.

Make sure that your boys help you.

    Before putting that food in your mouth. breath and then get a glass of water and drink it. Do another if needed.

That way it will fill you up quickly.

I always figure when I invite that many people, about a third will show up.

Good night Sunday.

Sunday, December 04, 2011

It's awfully late for me to be blogging but here I am :)...Good day all around. We went to mass with my in-laws. Then had breakfast at their house. That all went quite well. I then went to a Zumba class. It was my inspiring instructor but I didn't love her playlist. It also could have been the fact that I had a big breakfast a couple hours before hand. It felt like a brick in my stomache. :( Oh well.... It was a good workout. We then went to the local sympony orchestra to watch a Christmas special. Very nice. Josh's girlfriend was in the dance number. She is sweet. After the show we went to dinner for my dad's birthday. Josh and my nephew brought their girlfriends :0...They are growing up so fast.... Chris couldn't come. Of course he was invited :)...Our nephew told hs girlfriend that Adam may bring his boyfriend and she thought that was awesome...She said she's always wanted a gay friend! So hallerious! So now in my pj's and loving this day. Hope all my friends had a great weekend!
